Lobby groups say fast tracking the consent process for eleven shovel ready projects neglects commitments to climate action, and obstructs consultation with iwi & hapu. Economic downturn as a result of COVID-19 lockdown has generated a need for stimulus. The government says infrastructure developments such as these 11 projects will act as stimulus, but commentator Rod Oram explained to Mary-Margaret why this justification is flawed. Mary-Margaret also speaks to Te Ara Whatu's India Logan-Riley about concerns that fast tracking due process will exacerbate breaches of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and Generation Zero's Jen Coatham adds that an opportunity for climate action has been neglected.
